I’ve been interviewed by all the usual people starting with Johnny Carson. And John has a tremendous talent that is very rare. He’s got a gift.
- Bruce Dern, 2-time Oscar®-nominated actor and Cannes Film Festival® Best Actor winner
I had a thoroughly enjoyable time. I think John is very good at this, he’s very funny, and he has a nice sense of how to play with the conventions of the talk show.
- Tom Bergeron, 2-time Emmy Award® winner and nominated 13 times; host of Dancing with the Stars
He’s the nicest man – he’s adorable, he’s darling. You can tell that he’s an affectionate and warm-hearted person. He’s light-hearted and allows a performer to do whatever they want. It’s a wonderful experience.

He’s fresh and new and fun and delightful. Amazingly sexy!

John was so bright, witty, and he made the entire show so fun that I watched it from the audience

John is a strong host . . . very personable and interested. He is not trying to be interesting . . . he’s genuinely interested. He’s funny . . . charming.
